72432 Kimrobinson           Discovered 2001 Feb. 14 by D. P. Pray at Carbuncle Hill.
The novels of science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson (b. 1952) have described human settlement of the Solar System and beyond. Robinson has brilliantly imagined social and environmental challenges facing societies living on worlds such as Mercury, Earth, Mars and the asteroids.
